Bringing San Jose to Mexico City

Where am I from?

Questioned by the official in the Turibus in Mexico City, I first say, "San Jose" - add "California", and then, seeing some puzzled expressions, "India". I guess that's really what she wanted to know!

In Mexico City for a few days for a conference, headed to Brazil tomorrow (excited about being in the land of the Ronald(inh)os and Pele!)

Mexico City is a wonderful city - we climbed the Teotihuacan Pyramids outside the city yesterday, and took the Turibus ride around the city today! That cathedral is impressive!

The mix of old and new, and the stores and street vendors, the crowds - made me nostalgic about India - a visit is overdue!

The food is fantastic, and the margaritas are great!
